Seems to be.: Apperently, these cancers tend to be localaized and are less aggressive than other renal cancers. If treated early, studies suggest that these have a relatively good prognosis. Also, if there is no necrosis or lymph node invasion, this tends to point to a favorable prognosis. With proper treatment, it appears that removal will free you of this cancer. Best of luck!
